Register for Bike to Work

If you want a fun way to get fit and healthy while doing something positive for our environment, then register for Bike to Work Week! Going to events, like our Celebration Stations, is a great way to meet new people and celebrate cycling. It is quick, easy, fun, and FREE to participate.

You can register as an individual, join an existing team, or create your own team and encourage others to join. Registration is required as it allows you to log your trips, track your progress, and be entered for exciting prizes. Check out the information below on becoming a Team Leader. Or, if you’re ready to register now, simply click on the orange REGISTER button on the top right of your screen.
 

Start a Team & Become a Team Leader

What is a Team Leader?
  • A Team Leader is someone in the workplace or organization that motivates friends and co-workers to participate in Bike to Work Week. As the Team Leader, you can add people to your team in the registration system, or people can register themselves and join your team.
  • Team Leaders can hang Bike to Work Week posters in their workplace (e.g. in the lunch room, elevators, etc.) to help raise awareness about Bike to Work Week.
  • Team Leaders can monitor their team’s participation through their Bike to Work Week Dashboard and encourage teammates to log their kilometres, or alternatively Team Leaders can log teammates' kilometres for them.
  • Team Leaders can also organize friendly competitions within their team: who can cycle the most kilometres during BTWW, who can cycle the most trips during BTWW, who can cycle to work the most days during BTWW?
  • As a Team Leader, you help make a positive difference in people's lives. As you watch your teammates make healthier lifestyle choices and choose to cycle instead of drive, you will feel proud of your leadership.
